Side case on/off help

I got my new vstrom and it came with the Suzuki OEM side boxes and top box. I want to do a thorough cleaning and can't for the life of me figure out how to take them on or off. Any help or pictures appreciated. Thanks.

Perhaps model/year of your bike would helped as well as the info. about luggage. There is at list 4 of different OEM sets.

The plastic molded cases are easy enough. Turn the key, flip up the carry handle (which releases the middle tab) and then lift and slide backwards (towards back of bike).

Not sure about the metal boxes.
